DADA feature is only supported for solutions where all analytical content have been created in English language. This means that such solution elements like Reports or Data Sources have been created while appropriate user have been logged in to Cloud Application in English Language.

NOTE: DADA feature has been introduced in 1902 release, and as of now (March 2019) can only be enabled via configuring appropriate question in Business Configuration Work Center. It has been created to enhance the deployment process: when enabled only newly created analytical content or changed analytical content is to be considered during Life Cycle Management Activity of the solution. This considerably reduces time of solution deployment/ activation etc. since so far, as per system architecture, analytical content gets activated at the end, and in its full scope.

DADA functionality is also described in Blog listed in See Also section of this Knowledge Based Article.


Before requesting this feature please make sure that all analytical content of your solution have been created in language "EN". Other languages are not supported at the moment.
